In addition, the program offers training in clinical research.

Additional courses may be required to provide the knowledge base required for the thesis research. In addition, regular contributions to, and attendance at, a Journal Club and a Seminar series, will be a requirement to ensure a firm grounding in experimental methods.
Candidates must satisfy the general requirements for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. All students must have an MD degree from an LCME accredited Medical School and candidates must be currently registered in a Canadian Royal College Accredited Residency Program, a Residency Program in the College of Family Physicians of Canada or hold positions as a clinical fellow at a Canadian teaching hospital.
